Who knew there were four other books called The Soldier's Wife? Thanks, Goodreads! I always find Joanna Trollope's writing to be rather cool and aloof, which I confess I admire, and this book is no different. I loved the father and grandfather characters, but found Alexa (the wife of the title) to be a bit of a nothing. I wasn't sure what interested or motivated her - and she didn't seem to have much genuine affection for her hubbie at all. Maybe I'm not British enough, and she was in fact throbbing with unexpressed desire and need. Oh well.
